Whole House Surge Protector. Living in South Florida you probably already know the highest frequency of lightning strikes occur in Florida.
This means that your home may benefit if a whole house surge protector is installed. You can save money on the cost of repairs if your home is ever struck by lightning. Electrical surges caused by lightning can cause damage to any electrical device that is plugged into an outlet.
The energy that is contained in a lightning strike can carry many thousands of volts that may last only a split second, but can cause considerable damage. You know in South Florida that Lightning can strike even when you least expect it. The best way to protect your home from power surges is to install surge protection or a whole house surge protector.
Surge protectors or surge suppressors work by sending voltage that is in excess of normal to the electrical ground wire. This will happen with a couple of nanoseconds of a lightning strike. When the device detects a normal level of voltage, electricity for your home is restored. However, some lightning strikes may cause the fuse in some devices to fail.
As Florida licensed electricians, we can install a surge protection system to give you the peace of mind and protection you need. This is an installation a licensed electrician can complete is less than two hours.
Lightning strikes can vary in voltage and not all surge protectors for a home stop a surge completely. A small amount of voltage may leak through into your home. This amount if typically up to 15 percent of the entire voltage. Surge protection should also use in power strips plugged into individual outlets that have electrical devices connected.
If you are considering a whole whole surge protector, there are a number of options to consider and it's best to consult with a licensed electrician that can recommend the best surge protector to use for your home and your specific needs.
